Russia, China, Others Boycott U.s. Meeting At U.N. On Venezuela

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Russia, China, Egypt and Bolivia boycotted an informal public United Nations Security Council meeting on Venezuela on Monday organized by the United States, saying the 15-member body should not be involved in the situation.

“The issue is about meddling with the internal domestic affairs of Venezuela,” Russian U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia told reporters, adding that he hoped the country could settle its issues peacefully without any external interference.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the meeting: “The fact that the (Venezuelan) government would go so far as to try and get people not to show up to a meeting is guilt. And that’s unfortunate.”

Venezuela is suffering from a harsh economic crisis and President Nicolas Maduro’s government has clamped down on the opposition, jailing or otherwise barring from office many dissenting leaders and activists.

2. That's funny.

As 3 of those 4 countries are currently meddling in the internal affairs of Venezuela.

This is another place where Trump is correct. It is the SOCIALIST policies of the Chavez and Maduro more than anything else that have destroyed the place. The population is starving and now under attack from their own government. This should be appalling to anyone who lives freedom, but this is what Bernie Sanders and company want for America.
